Mk II TBS Timberwolf Bushcraft Knife - Standard Sheath - Curly Birch
TBS Timberwolf Bushcraft Knife - Mk II
The all new TBS Timberwolf Bushcraft Knife is the latest evolution in the TBS family and we have taken this knife to another level. We are continually learning and evolving at TBS which is why we believe we are simply the best in the business.
We have striven to bring quality, well designed products to the World market and the Timberwolf is part of that continuing evolution. The Timberwolf is a classic Bushcraft Knife with all the brilliant features of a perfect companion tool.
It features a high quality, scandi ground, Carbon Steel drop point blade that is razor sharp straight out of the box and makes processing wood and doing general cutting tasks effortless. The 115mm length features more pronounced fingerguard, a short Ricasso and a Choil which makes for perfect indexing in almost any grip and enhances your ability to make powerful and controlled cuts. I know that the modern fad is to have a Bushcraft knife with a blade that simply disappears into the handle with no guard, ricasso or choil, well, NOT here. In my opinion knives like this are far easier to cut your index finger when you choke up on the handle making them a danger to you.
The handle is wonderfully ergonomic, just like all of our other models. It features a natural sweep to the back with a god sized palm swell and this makes for a perfect fit to your hand and allows your wrist and shoulder to sit in a more natural position. Straight back handled knives make you unnaturally straighten your wrist and raise your shoulder when cutting vertically which means you fatigue quicker and are not as comfortable to use.
The Timberwolf features 3 different handle material options, Curly Birch, Turkish Walnut and Black Micarta. All our Timber is sustainably sourced and we love the fact that our wood is coming from trees that were planted by the current owners Parents, Grand Parents and Great Grand Parents. It sits perfectly with our ethos at TBS about treating everyone who works for us and everyone within our supply chain fairly. That includes fair pay, good working environment and doing everything as ecologically minded as we/they can.
Of course, if you select a Timber handle, you will need to maintain them with cleaning and oiling that can be part of the joy of owning a real heritage piece of cutlery that will last generations. We advise oiling with a boiled linseed oil but there are many other oils and waxes out there that will nourish the wood throughout its life and keep it as water resistant as possible and this can be down to your personal preference.
The Timberwolf, of course, features our newest upgraded leatherwork which are a combination of high quality leather with innovative designs. Our modular sheaths have also been phenomenally popular as they offer something different from the norm that everyone churns out. They are all made from high quality Full Grain leather and feature a brilliant array of accessories and carry options so you can really tailor your knife to suit your needs.

Amazing Bushcraft Knife
I ordered this knife from some older YouTube review, and I fell in love with this knife right away. Amazing craftsmanship and beautiful leatherwork. The knife Handel's absolutely well and easy for most Bushcraft tasks. it's a real beast! Perfect kit.
exceptionally well made
An amazing product, exceptionally well made, sits very well in the hand, the handle looks fantastic too, a very durable knife, very happy
Best Knife I've ever bought
Razor sharp out of the box. Beautiful curly birch handle fits my big hands perfectly. I've always been apprehensive about "stainless" blades but TBS says this one performs just as well as HC steel. I took it out to the forest and beat the knife to within an inch of its life (battening wood, feather sticks, stabbing it into tree stumps because it's manly). Lost a tiny amount of sharpness at the tip but perfectly serviceable, performs about as well as HC in my experience, but with less maintenance - just give it a strop every now and then. Sheath is beautiful and looks well made. This knife will outlast me.
First impressions are amazing!
Just received my MK2 timberwolf k720 tool steel, scandi grind with curly birch handle.
On first impressions I am very pleased with my purchase. I wanted a hefty bushcraft knife with a little more beef than my Mora's and was torn between buying the timberwolf or grizzly. I settled on the 4mm thick timberwolf and glad I did. The blade came nicely finished with no defects and shaving sharp. Nice shape to the blade and spine capable of throwing sparks with a ferro rod. The scales and liners are well finished and are a lovely fit to the tang. The handle shape is perfect for my med/large hand size and fits very well in the hand with good weight balance. The dangler pouch that came with it is nice and simple and does the job and fitment is good. Not had out in field yet but have tried a little feathersticking at home and performs well and can already tell it will be a beast at batoning. Hope to have this knife for many years to come.
